It's been a while and I've slowly been building up a backlog of photographs of random items and cherry blossom. Mainly cherry blossom. There are about forty photos in total. The best ones will load, others are linked and some you won't be able to see unless you are logged in properly. Those are the ones of my birthday party, which we held on April 4th.


Radio mast // I was at an unfamiliar station about a month ago and this looked striking against the clear blue sky. (Phone camera)

Ristorante Paradiso booth // The only photo I took at the Tokyo International Anime Fair with my camera phone. It turned out better than the one take with my regular camera.

Riverbank blossom // This isn't sakura and it bloomed very early. The colours really were that striking. (Phone camera)

River bird // I have no idea what kind of bird this is, but I see them occasionally around the river. Crane? (Phone camera)

Sakura tea // Carefully positioned so you can see a pink leaflet with the word 'graduation' on it. I took this picture before I tasted it. (Phone camera)

Pestle and mortar // I went to a shabushabu restaurant for the end-of-term drinking party. Before we started, we ground up sesame seeds to make the sauce. It was SO good. (Phone camera)

Dessert // Here's dessert at the same place. (Phone camera)

Odaiba // For our anniversary, kuroe and I went to a Dragonforce concert in Zepp Tokyo. It was like living in the 80s again. (Phone camera)

Ferris wheel // Odaiba again. (Phone camera)

Blossom // Outside my house. (Phone camera)

More blossom // Same again. (Phone camera)

Kit-Kat // Everyone loves Japanese Kit-Kats? Espresso coffee flavour. (Olympus camera)

Saitama Blossom

A small stream in Saitama // I could see these trees from the train, so I decided to track them down. (Olympus camera)

Cherry trees // I wrote a haiku about what I saw for Japanese class. 荒川に 桜で描く 縞模様。 It's not the Arakawa river, as far as I know, although it's very close. (Olympus camera)

Cherry trees // Much of the blossom had already fallen into the water. (Olympus camera)

On the river bank // Everything floating in the river is fallen blossom. (Olympus camera)
